CommercialUpdated: 3 years ago
W hether you are planning the construction of a new commercial building or the renovation of an existing one, the successful completion of your project begins with detailed architectural plans that take into account every facet of your business requirements, as well as the satisfying the needs of local planning boards.
A state-of-the-art medical facility. A pharmacy designed to the specifications of a corporate franchise. A modern corporate headquarters. An industrial garage. An 18,000-sq. ft. fitness facility.
Lead by F. Paul Frederick, AIA , we have designed functional commercial buildings of varying types and sizes throughout New England. Given our breadth of knowledge and years of experience, we have the expertise to develop functional solutions that address the specific needs of your business.
Regardless of your business’s industry, we ensure that none of your design requirements are overlooked. We know that your gym will need locker rooms, your veterinary clinic will require a surgical suite, and your 120-unit apartment building will need storage space, because we’ve designed something similar in the past.
Paul and his team know which questions various zoning boards are going to ask. When it comes to seeking construction approvals, having concise answers to these questions can be the difference between an immediate approval and months of delays.
